Abortion: denial of our rights (Episode 7 of 7)

Cheriel Jensen, an architect and member of the California Committee to Legalize Abortion speaks on "Abortion: denial of our rights" at a teach-in on the oppression of women at San Francisco State College on December 10, 1969. Jensen speaks on how sex discrimination affects both men and women, how sex discrimination affects children and their attitudes, and how a lack of safe abortions and safe contraception leaves men in complete control of a woman's fate. Jensen also speaks on the consequences of a marriage where one spouse is emotionally and financially dependent on the other for survival, and on marriages conceived because of a pregnancy. Talk ends abruptly; possibly cut off prematurely.
